Sounds like a pretty wild guess to me. ;-)

c:\>c:\a\python23\python.exe 
c:\a\python23\Lib\site-packages\pychecker\checker.py test.py
Processing test...

Warnings...

test.py:2: self is argument in staticmethod

c:\>type test.py
class A:
     def func(self, blah):
         pass

     func = staticmethod(func)


Does your code look anything like the above?  The warning message
is very explicit about what is wrong here...  a staticmethod
should not really have a "self" parameter.
